3-17-18 – THE WISDOM OF WHOLENESS: Tuning In to Wellness and Healing Your Life, Part III

Today’s Notes:

I – “…In the crowd pressing around Jesus, there was a woman who had suffered continuous bleeding for 12 years, bleeding that made her ritually unclean and an outcast according to the purity laws. She had suffered greatly; and although she spent all her money on her medical care, she had only gotten worse. She had heard of this Miracle-Man, Jesus, so she snuck up behind Him in the crowd and reached out her hand to touch His cloak.
Woman (to herself): Even if all I touch are His clothes, I know I will be healed.
As soon as her fingers brushed His cloak, the bleeding stopped. She could feel that she was whole again.
Lots of people were pressed against Jesus at that moment, but He immediately felt her touch; He felt healing power flow out of Him.
He stopped. Everyone stopped. He looked around.
Jesus: Who just touched My robe?
His disciples broke the uneasy silence.
Disciples: Jesus, the crowd is so thick that everyone is touching You. Why do You ask, “Who touched Me?”
But Jesus waited. His gaze swept across the crowd to see who had done it. At last, the woman—knowing He was talking about her—pushed forward and dropped to her knees. She was shaking with fear and amazement.
Woman: I touched You.
Then she told Him the reason why. Jesus listened to her story.
Jesus: Daughter, you are well because you dared to believe. Go in peace, and stay well.
(Mark 5:24-34 – The Voice)

II – “If a person’s basic state of mind is serene and calm, then it is possible for this inner peace to overwhelm a painful physical experience.” — The Dalai Lama

III – “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” — Socrates

IV – “I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. He will put some things behind, will pass an invisible boundary; new, universal, and more liberal laws will begin to establish themselves around and within him; or the old laws be expanded, and interpreted in his favor in a more liberal sense, and he will live with the license of a higher order of beings. In proportion as he simplifies his life, the laws of the universe will appear less complex, and solitude will not be solitude, nor poverty poverty, nor weakness weakness. If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.” ― Henry David Thoreau

V – (meme pic) Healing is the return of the memory of wholeness. Healing, health, whole and holy all mean inclusiveness. Body, mind, spirit, environment, relationships, social interactions are all one wholeness, and you’re a part of that wholeness. – Deepak Chopra

VI – “To be great, be whole;
Exclude nothing, exaggerate nothing that is not you.
Be whole in everything. Put all you are
Into the smallest thing you do.
So, in each lake, the moon shines with splendor
Because it blooms up above.”
― Fernando Pessoa

VII – “In every atom, there is a reflection of the whole.” ― Jay Woodman

3-10-19 – THE WISDOM OF WHOLENESS: Tuning in to Wellness and Healing Your Life, Part II

Today’s Notes:

I – Lepers (shouting across the distance): Jesus, Master, show mercy to us!

Jesus: Go now and present yourselves to the priests for inspection of your disease.

They went, and before they reached the priests, their skin disease was healed, leaving no trace of the disease that scarred them and separated them from the community.

One of them, the instant he realized he had been healed, turned and ran back to Jesus, shouting praises to God. He prostrated himself facedown at Jesus’ feet.

Leper: Thank You! Thank You!

Now this fellow happened to be, not a Jew, but a Samaritan.

Jesus: Didn’t all ten receive the same healing this fellow did? Where are the other nine? Was the only one who came back to give God praise an outsider? (to the Samaritan man) Get up, and go your way. Your faith has made you healthy again.
(Luke 17:11-19 – The Voice)

II – “A major component of health and wellness, gratitude helps us to appreciate the blessings we already have and sparks the anticipatory pleasure of blessings to come.”
― Laurie Buchanan, PhD

III – (Meme) The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. — Hippocrates

IV – “Your body holds deep wisdom. Trust in it. Learn from it. Nourish it. Watch your life transform and be healthy.”
– Bella Bleue

V – “No matter how much it gets abused, the body can restore balance. The first rule is to stop interfering with nature.”
– Deepak Chopra

VI – “Those who think they have no time for healthy eating…will sooner or later have to find time for illness.”~Edward Stanley

VII – (Meme) Health is a state of body. Wellness is a state of being. — J.Stanford

3-3-19 – THE WISDOM OF WHOLENESS: Tuning in to Wellness and Healing Your Life, Part I

Today’s Notes:

I – Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life!
(Proverbs 3:5-8 – AMPC)

II – “My son, attend to my words; consent and submit to my sayings. Let them not depart from your sight; keep them in the center of your heart. For they are life to those who find them, healing and health to all their flesh.”
(Proverbs 4:20-22 – AMPC)

III – “A sound mind makes for a robust body, but runaway emotions corrode the bones.”
(Proverbs 14:30 – The Message)

IV – “Beloved friend, I pray that you are prospering in every way and that you continually enjoy good health, just as your soul is prospering.”
(III John 2 – TPT)

V – “Now when I hear about someone’s illness, no matter how dire their predicament seems to be, I know that if they’re willing to do the mental work of releasing and forgiving, almost anything can be healed. The word incurable, which is so frightening to so many people, really only means that the particular condition cannot be cured by ‘outer’ methods and that we must go within to affect the healing. The condition came from nothing and will go back to nothing.” – Louise Hay

VI – (meme pic)
Feeling sad can alter levels of stress-related opioids in the brain and increase levels of inflammatory proteins in the blood that are linked to increased risk of co-morbid diseases including heart disease, stroke and metabolic syndrome. ~Univ of TX Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth), Dec. 16, 2015

VII – “We’ve in fact conditioned ourselves to believe all sorts of things that aren’t necessarily true — and many of these things are having a negative impact on our health and happiness. We’re addicted to our beliefs; we’re addicted to the emotions of our past. We see our beliefs as truths, and not as ideas that we can change.” – Dr. Joe Dispenza
